【看英文中國郵報學英文】北港花燈藝師吳登興技藝受到國外肯定,今年再次受馬來西亞康寧寺邀請設計祈福主燈及平安總燈,週一完工裝箱海運,預計於農曆年前運至馬來西亞舉行開燈儀式。

Local lantern artist Wu Teng-hsing, who has won international recognition for his craftsmanship, was recently commissioned by Kong Leng See Temple in Malaysia to design two lanterns that celebrate the Chinese New Year. Wu reportedly shipped the lanterns on Dec. 23 to Malaysia, right on time for the annual Chinese New Year celebrations.

吳登興說六年前受住持法師釋如慧邀請為康寧寺操刀設計一座燈並至馬來西亞組裝。今年初法師釋如慧再次遠道至北港,再次邀請設計兩座花燈,祈福主燈的設計以今年當值的十二生肖「鼠」,祈求眾生無國界鼠年「數來寶」,寶入家門家家發財。

According to Wu, the host of the Kong Leng See Temple in Malaysia asked him to design the lanterns 6 years ago. Representatives of the temple came to Beigang township in central Taiwan again this year to commission the lantern artist. The two lanterns, designed on the theme of rats, aim to give blessings and bring wealth to worshippers. The Rat, the first animal of the 12-year cycle, is a preeminent animal in the Chinese zodiac.

吳登興表示,提升花燈的藝術收藏價值,作品結合傳統與現代,和北港工藝師黃志偉將神像製作的掐絲技法及粉線雕融入花燈人物衣服、裝飾加強立體感及精緻度。

Thanks to the help of another well-known craftsman from Beigang, Huang Chi-wei, the lanterns boast a fusion of traditional and modern elements. Huang further developed a new technique of making a deity to make the lanterns’ clothes look more exquisite and three-dimensional.
